Eligibility for the Early Years Pupil Premium (EYPP)

Guidance on the EYPP from the Department for Education (DfE) explains that children aged between 3 and 4 years old who attend state-funded early years provision are eligible for the EYPP if their family receives one of the following:

  • Income support
  • Income-based jobseeker's allowance
  • Income-related employment and support allowance
  • Support under part VI of the Immigration and Asylum Act 1999
  • The guaranteed element of state pension credit
  • Child tax credit (if the family is not also entitled to working tax credit and has an annual gross income of no more than £16,190)
  • Working tax credit run-on
  • Universal credit
  • They have been in local authority care for one day or more in England or Wales
  • They have been adopted from care in England or Wales
  • They have left care under a special guardianship order or residence order in England or Wales

To attract the EYPP, children must be receiving free early years education but do not have to take up their full entitlement to 570 hours in order to receive the funding.
